The Shift in Coal Mine

The Shift in Coal Mine, Soma, Turkey

Every year many industrial accidents occur in Turkey and nearly 1200 workers died last year. A portion of these deaths are in the coal mines. My project is about coal mine workers who have major risks of deadly accidents.

In May 2014, the nation's worst mining accident occurred in Soma, Turkey. The government confirmed the death of 301 workers. The photographs in this exhibit were taken in January in the Soma mine, five months before the accident.
